Sal Cover 01BOOM! Studios is publishing SALVADOR, a comic from The Polish Brothers, the award-winning writer-director-producer team behind the upcoming film, THE ASTRONAUT FARMER. Hollywood types turning to comics? That never happens. But the art looks nice. The creative team includes writer Sebastian A Jones, J.K. Woodward (FALLEN ANGEL) on covers and Steph Stamb (ANGEL) on the interiors, known for his work on IDW’s Angel series.

“A savior for DNA discards. He is the salvation for genetic engineering gone awry. As a product of testing, he was born brittle and light as a feather. As a result, he can fly, but is ultimately fragile. The world he loves and desires to save – can shatter him to pieces.” The saga of SALVADOR begins in April 2007. The first issue features 22 pages of story content in full color.

“The Polish Brothers began their careers at the forefront of American independent film in 1999 and have never looked back since,” BOOM! Publisher Ross Richie said. “Their debut film TWIN FALLS IDAHO was the toast of Sundance in 1999, and they’ve followed it up with a string of brilliant films in JACKPOT, NORTHFORK, and the upcoming ASTRONAUT FARMER. We just couldn’t be more excited that they’ve chosen BOOM! As a home to one of their projects. It’s a delight to be a fan of someone in film and get a shot now at working with them in comics.”


  1. I dunno – to see some Silver Surfer knock off trying to support himself aloft by flapping a couple of peacock feathers together- looks just too exhausting to me, let alone even attempt to read.

    Kinda reminds me of that old joke – ‘gee I just flew in from JFK to LAX in this silver space suit- and boy are my arms tired! ‘
